The Eyes Have It is memorable. Good ending.

Not a novel as much as a long short story, short of a novella.

He is the SciFi writer that you have to say you like if you want to be in with the rest of the SciFi crowd. Androids, I enjoyed that but otherwise he doesn't really draw me in. I think his stuff tends to lend itself better to screenplays than novels.

It sounds like you have a specific purpose for this question. And that, I think, is probably the most interesting feature here. So, whatcha doing? :)

Sorry to (probably) disappoint. I was going to read something :)

I'm not familiar with his work, but I cam across something that made me think it was worth a (free) try. Then I learned his work was the basis for Blade Runner (which I didn't care for, but seems to be popular). I was hoping to find a good place to start, but that doesn't seem to be likely.
